Ok, before you call me on the fact that I’m pushing an m90z ThinkCentre from Lenovo (think of the giveaway coming sometime later this Spring), I have to share TechSavvyEducator (Ben Rimes) fun video of his kindergarten darling working with TuxPaint.

Although Texas is slipping into the quagmire of debt and ruin, it’s great to imagine “What if….” with these touchscreens in the hands of awesome ankle-byters!

And, if you’ve missed TuxPaint, you really need to go get it installed on your machine. It’s a fun, easy paint tool reminiscent of KidPix (for you old timers that remember it), as well as free, open source.

Tux Paint is a free, award-winning drawing program for children ages 3 to 12 (for example, preschool and K-6). It combines an easy-to-use interface, fun sound effects, and an encouraging cartoon mascot who guides children as they use the program.
